UKS2 Literacy - Rafael Nadal Reading Comprehension Activity

Rafa Nadal informational text activity with comprehension and grammar questions. A great activity for students learning about influential sports stars! The reading comprehension activity looks at the life and trophy-laden career of the Spanish tennis superstar.

The activity requires NO PREP and has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers.

Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document.

Time allowance ( one hour)
5 minutes - read through the text individually.
40 minutes - answer questions using the text as guidance (including extension activity)
15 minutes - Teacher and students go through the text and answers
